  1. Clear Overrides in Proprieties Panel

    Proprieties panel is great, for text boxes however we need a little more in the text styles section, like a clear overrides button from the paragraph styles window

  4. Change Jpeg export default to 300 dpi (Or whatever your preference)

    When InDesign restarts it defaults the export setting for jpgs to 72 dpi (ppi). I use a script that exports for me and needs to export at 300 dpi. With the default it will revert to 72 dpi every time I restart InDesign and I have to manually reset it to 300 dpi. There needs to be a preference or setting that makes it so I can keep my preferred setting of 300 dpi after a restart without having to manually reset it in the dialog box every time.

  6. Find font should allow the use of character styles

    When I import a Word file and preserve local formatting some text comes through as an unrecognized font because the local style applied to the text does not match the style available in the family.

    For example there is some text that is Calibi Italic. My body copy uses Frutiger LT Std and the italic version is Frutiger LT Std 56 Italic. InDesign has styles the text as Frutiger LT Std Italic, so it is pink and uses the wrong font.

    Find/Change does not allow me to search for a style that does not exist. I cannot search for Frutiger…

  7. No transition effects to assist loading pages with identical backgrounds.

    By default Publish online introduces a fade on page load even when there are no transitions applied in InDesign. This interferes when you use multiple pages to spoof the appearance of navigating within a one-page environment.

    When I export to PDF the background isn't redrawn so the appearance of the linked page appears smoothly. Publish Online is clunky when loading the next page as it momentarily goes black and then fades-in the page items.

    A bit of background .... I've created a page with a number of rollover buttons, then a duplicate of that page which is navigated to (x10)…

  8. Image Object page break

    Make a page break for an image object become a separate page/xhtml doc in epub export. Not just something in the code, but an actual page, so that that if I say page break before image or after or both, it separates the image onto it's own xhtml doc and truly breaks it. Just like the split page export option in a para style, this would be helpful for objects to be treated the same way.

  10. In Mojave Dark mode: let window bar be dark instead of light.

    At this moment the window bar is light, only when application frame is selected everything is darkened.

  13. visibility of the Colorsetting in menu bar

    I often work in different color settings for newspaper printing or offset printing. It seems convenient to me if I can see the current color setting as a notification in the menu bar. Also usefull for other applications as well like Illustrator and Photoshop.

  14. Text Variable as a consecutive number

    Possibility of defining and inserting a text variable as a consecutive number of the list.
    Thanks to this variable it will be possible to number subsequent words in a sentence. For example (1) thing, (2) thing, (3) thing etc, or thing1, thing2, thing3 etc. There are infinitely many possibilities. Verse of poetry at the end of the verse etc. References to comments which are not endnotes or footnotes (without laborious definition of cross references). Sometimes it is necessary to list the words or any fragment of text within a paragraph, or to add numbered references to comments inside the text.

  16. Onion skin layer for design notes to developer

    Was just chatting with our UX lead and we thought it'd be great to have a master layer, fixed to the top of the layer panel called something like 'Design Notes' make handoff to dev easier with a few design notes included in the file itself but not a distraction when not needed.

  17. REPLACING A PLACED ITEM SHOULD NOT INCREASE OR DECREASE THE SIZE OF THE NEW ITEM.

    When you have a box with a placed item and you go to replace the item, the program should not INCREASE or DECREASE the percentage of the place item to fill the box. (Just cost me a client)

  18. "arrange document"

    Enhanced 'Arrange Documents' features

    It would be very helpful if one could apply keyboard shortcuts to 'Arrange Documents' options (Consolidate All, Tile All in Grid, Tile All Vertically, etc.) It would also be awesome if we could save our own frequently used layouts.

  19. Show warning if you try to spellcheck checked-in text

    If you spellcheck a text which is checked in no changes will be made. You only get the information that 0 changes were made. This behaviour may be logically correct, but it i user-unfriendly.
    Please inform the user that he/she is spell-checking a checked-in text. Plus: Allow him/her at this point to check out the text.

  20. Annoying dialogs, option to “don’t show again”...

    Is there some universal way to turn off unnecessary dialogs?

    For example when I click to publish a document for online, I get an annoying dialog that says "Are you sure you want to update..." (see attached).

    Why is this dialog necessary? I can just re-publish if there was some mistake. It just slows things down. Some dialogs like this do have a "don't show me this again" option, but not here... why?

    In general, I find the plethora of "Do you really want to..." dialogs disruptive and unnecessary. Except for something critical, or something you can't undo, why do…
